Easiest method to write USB flash installer is to use Universal USB Installer – Easy as 1 2 3
with Windows 7 in the dropdown menu.

Follow the steps in the Perfect Reinstall link in my signature picture below to get a perfect install.

I appreciate it, however I provided an alternative, that instead of a software disk part can be used.

I don't think I've ever gotten XP installer to boot on a flash stick. But then I always had CD drives available.

At one time Win2Flash advertised it wrote XP to stick, but it never worked for me. However an OP I was helping got it to write the Windows 7 Repair CD to stick and it worked fine.

why not, although i do believe u!!! I used wintoflash with what i thought was a winxp disc. I am not really sure what the disc was for, I am worried if i boot with the usb, winxp will over run my system!!! There is no iso on the usb or disc, I have screen printed the files from my usb, what will happen if i boot from it??? Thanks for your help.
